"My name is Chris and I am 14 years old. Yes, this review may seem a bit biased because Victory Martial Arts is my family's karate school but I wanted to take a minute to share my experience from the karate training I have had since I was only 3 years old. My martial arts training has given me invaluable experiences of leadership, effort, public speaking and performance, competition and camaraderie that have helped me to become not only a trustworthy and responsible person but a top athlete in several sports as well. My karate training has taken me to competitions in over 5 states including National and World competitions. Because of those experiences I have made friends from all around the country. My competition experience in karate has also given me the tools I need to be successful in the other big passion in my life, freestyle skiing. I know that without the skills I have learned in karate that I would never be able to deal with the pressures of the Freestyle Ski competition world. Also, I know that without the body awareness and conditioning, strength, coordination and flexibility I have gained from the 11 years I have trained in the martial arts, my body would not be able to withstand the stress and physical exertion I put on it when I am training for my skiing. One of the most important things that I know karate has given me is the ability to believe in myself and trust my instincts. I am not afraid to try new things or meet new people and I love being able to teach my skills to others. I know that without karate my life would be very different and I am thankful everyday that I am fortunate enough to have this karate training in my life and to be able to share it with others."
